What is DIA and why it stands out
from other insurtech events

  • DIA is coined ‘the must-see insurtech event’, thanks to its distinctive format and renowned ambience
  • All nine editions have been Europe’s largest, most compelling, and most international
  • Aimed at connecting change agents in the insurance industry
  • A first-rate program. More than 80% C-level audience. The event with the big WOW-factor
  • Not a trade fair or labyrinth of company booths. No third-rate coffee and long lines at generic buffets. No half-empty rooms, and definitely no long list of free invitees who don’t show up

“I have been to multiple DIAs before. It’s a unique combination of the curated speeches, which are very interesting and on the other hand to connect and interact with the start-ups on stage.”
